I loved Gillian's book. I work a lot with students to encourage them to remember Anne Frank's story in order to learn from the errors of the past and in order to build a better society today. Anne Frank's life and Diary changed my life. I already know a lot about her, but it is never enough.
Gillian is such a wonderful person, such an amazing human being which I am honoured to be connected with. She is an inspiration. To read her book was a gift, to me. It was such a refreshing, deep, touching re

Shelves: professional
Fantastic insights from Anne Frank Trust UK’s long-time director Gillian Wayne’s Perry. The strengths of the book lie in its portrayal of the Anne Frank House’s international traveling exhibit program, and especially in its accompanying peer-to-peer educator program. Some of the chapters read more like travelogues than analysis, and some details feel out-of-place, but overall the tone is thoughtful and accessible, and the writing is cogent.

Fascinating behind the scenes read. I learned so much about Anne, her family and the way her legacy was carried on, even today.
